A CD that compiles all of this French band´s recorded material to date: "Macabre exaltation" demo (2012), their side of the split w/ Demonic Oath (2014) and the "Dimensions obscure" EP (2016). Back at the band´s beginning, one could already hear that a French Death Metal uprising was at hand, and their split mini-album with countrymen Demonic Oath put further punctuation on this claim. But it was "Dimensions obscure" where Cadaveric Fumes truly arrived. Compared to their earlier work on that split and the preceding demo, on "Dimensions obscure" Cadaveric Fumes forewent the all-manic/all-the-time morbidity for a highly dynamic and nuanced take on Death Metal. Granted, flashes of mid 80´s insanity and early 90´s darkness remained, but a cool confidence was at play here, each passage measured to inflict both maximum cranial damage and spiritual atmosphere. These songs exuded a patience and maturity most Death Metal bands take many albums to accomplish, if at all, and all without compromising the core values of total and utter Death Metal.
